*DIGITAL* Say Their Names, A Personal Story of Artistic Activism
Vermont Humanities Digital Channels
In May 2020, Dr. Matthew Evan Taylor began a musical composition in response to the escalating uprising in the wake of the murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Ahmaud Arbery. Including selections from his recorded work, Dr. Taylor will discuss his journey towards using music as an avenue for advocacy and activism.
The resulting performances became the album “Say Their Names” out now on the music platform Bandcamp. Dr. Taylor is a professor of music at Middlebury College.
